Last month, I attended the launch of Jurlique Activating Water Essence at the Lowline underground park at 140 Essex Street, between Rivington and Stanton.
Activating Water Essence is a plant-based infusion enriched with highly concentrated, organically grown Marshmallow Root Extract (also used in over 70 Jurlique products) to hydrate and help rebalance dry skin and prevent moisture loss, leaving skin feeling soft and smooth. Other key extracts include Calendula, Neem, Witch Hazel, Rosemary, Lavender, Horsetail, Nettle, Lemon Balm, Peppermint, Yarrow, Marjoram, Sage Leaf and Peach Leaf.
Activating Water Essence features a light, herbal botanical scent with notes of lavender, geranium, and Australian sandalwood. If you love the scents of Jurlique's products like I do, you'll love this newest addition to their product line. Activating Water Essence is a solution for dryness, dullness, uneven texture, and uneven skintone.
Activating Water Essence is an easy step to add to your skincare morning and nightly skincare routine - you apply it right after your toning mist and before your serum and moisturizer. Just pour a few drops into the palm of your hand and press over your face, neck and décolletage. It works for every skin type, and is free of artificial colors, fragrances, parabens, sulfates, phthalates and PEGs.
Based on a clinical survey of 52 women aged 25 to 50, who used Activating Water Essence twice a day for 14 days, 92% of women said their skin felt softer and smoother, 90% of women, said their skin visibly looked and felt healthier, and 88% of women said their skin felt continuously hydrated.
For summer travel, I plan on putting Activating Water Essence in a mini spray bottle, and use it as a mist. Activating Water Essence 150mL / 5.0 fl.oz. size is currently available at sephora.com for $55.
It looks like a strange dessert but I assure you, it's light and refreshingly good! Raindrop Cake by Darren Wong is inspired by traditional Mizu Shingen Mochi from Japan. I couldn't decide on one flavor, so I tried all three - matcha, lavender and brown sugar flavors added on the sides and on the top of the cake. The texture/flavor is similar to clear gelatin.
So glad I was able to checkout The Lowline!
